HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN YET?
The Truth About the Somme
Sunday 19 June | 6:30pm
Heath Street Baptist Church
84 Heath Street | London NW3 1DN
Remembering one of Britain's most disastrous conflicts through history, poetry and song. Performers include historian Neil Faulkner and singer-songwriter Robb Johnson. More names to be announced very soon.
The event features two special launches:
• No Glory's new pamphlet Have You Forgotten Yet? by Neil Faulkner
• The song Dandelions by Steve O'Donoghue - a tribute to the men who fought and died on the Somme
As we approach the centenary of the first day of the Battle of the Somme, 1 July 1916, let us remember the victims of this dreadful battle with an evening of understanding and reflection. Historian Neil Faulkner will set the context, challenging today's political fashion for reframing the Somme as a vital, noble step in winning the war. The evening will be a deft weave of word and music. Through poetry and trench song, we'll hear from those who took part, and we'll hear from those whose lives were blighted indirectly by the battle.
This is a fundraiser for No Glory, a campaign dedicated to challenging any attempts to sanitise, excuse or glorify the First World War.
